PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — Get ready for another First Alert Weather day in the Phoenix area, with breaking records for your Sunday!

We forecasted a high of 111° this afternoon, which is nearly 10° above average for this time of year. However, as of about 1:15 p.m., we just beat the record for this date set back in 1990, with a temperature of 112°. The National Weather Service says that a high of 114° or even 115° is possible, as we have a few more hours left in the day.

Look for partly cloudy skies to start the day and likely increasing clouds this afternoon. Temperatures will drop as we head into another work week. We’re expecting afternoon highs to get to 106° tomorrow and only 102° on Tuesday, with storm chances returning. As of now, the Phoenix area has about a 30% chance for isolated storms on Tuesday, but chances are better to the north and east of the Valley.

Highs will be in the 103° – 104° range on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
